Walmart isn't willing to miss out on the action and has followed in the footsteps of various other retailers with its own selection of early Black Friday deals. It's now launched a three-day sale with some huge savings up for grabs on loads of top tech, including the latest Apple Watch 8, TVs, laptops, appliances, and more.

You can head straight through to Walmart to see all the offers currently available or scroll down further to check out our hand-picked selection of the best deals.

The undoubted highlight of everything in the current Walmart sale is the first-ever discount on the latest Apple Watch 8. The brand-new and upgraded smartwatch has been available for less than a month, but you can already save $50 today and pick up an Apple Watch 8 for $349 (was $399). It's an excellent offer we wouldn't have expected to see until much closer to Black Friday in November.

There's more Apple tech reduced in the Walmart sale as well, including last year's 11-inch and 12-inch iPad Pro. The discounts range from $150 - $500 depending on the model and storage capacity - and bring the premium tablet down to some of the cheapest prices we've ever seen.

Alongside these standout deals, you can also find large-display Smart TVs for less than $200, a selection of kitchen appliances such as air fryers for $79, and a power all-purpose laptop for the budget price of $250.

Overall, it's a strong start of offers with Black Friday a little under two months away, so you can pick up some bargains ahead of time. Remember, though, that the Prime Early Access Sale is on this week too, which is a similar event to Amazon Prime Day that it runs in the summer and will feature a vast number of exclusive deals for members.
